That is why somewhere on about two years or so ago the list was then changed
to reflect the interests in rescue of other cool computers.

There was comment made on another geekish list I subscribe to groaning about
all the FeeCee and doze crud on this list. I happen to agree with the poster
to the other list.

Might be a good idea to click the link at the bottom of this email and read
the list description. The word 'Sun' is still prominent in the description.

And no, FeeCee's are not servers or workstations in spite of what
$MARKET_DROIDS tell you.

To many of us yes. FeeCee's are evil poorly designed junk that are not
worthy of resuce. Sadly due to financial circumstances I am forced to use
this here FeeCee laptop. But that will change. However all my network
services are running on Sun 4m hardware and my downstairs workstation is a
G3 B&W Mac.

Maybe you need new friends to talk computers to.
